-Alleged Infringement. Mr. CV RILEY. - Has the Prime Minister's attention been drawn to a paragraph in this morning's Sun News Pictorial dealing with an alleged infringement of the White Australia policy by the influx into the Commonwealth of a considerable number of Chinese students? Is it a fact, as stated, that a large number of Chinese students have been granted permission to enter the Commonwealth? Will the Prime Minister please explain the reason why the Treasurer and himself brought pressure to bear on the honorable member for New England (Mr. Thompson) with the object of preventing the honorable member from ventilating m the House such an urgent matter of public importance?
